Since she is the caregiver there are services available to her. Trained staff can come in and hang out with him for a few hours so she can go to coffee, grocery shop, get her nails done, etc. The state will pay for her to have a break.




Does he have ABA therapy?

Nope, nothing.



When he was in high school he had therapy, counseling, and was getting an education. Then he told my mom he didn't want to go and my mom never made him go to school, therapy, or counseling again.



He sits at home ALL DAY, and NEVER leaves the house. I'm not overexaggerating either, he never leaves unless he's checking the mail.



I want to see him doing better and honestly, if my mom needs to be scared into doing it, I don't mind.



I'll call monday to check where to send that.

There has to be something along the same lines as what my grandmother goes it, she is in a day program (she has Alzheimers) where they do crafts, music, etc and then have specialists come in to help with things like hair washing and podiatrist appointments and all kinds of random helpful stuff. Like most people with Alzheimers my grandmother is terrified of getting in the shower or tub, so this is a HUGE help to my mom. My grandmother lives with my mom, by the way. Mentally she is about 5-6 years old. She goes to her program 5 days a week from 7:30-3:30



Good luck. :(
